The 'Bride Wars' star sparked backlash after she described getting cesarean section as the laziest thing she's ever done.
Mothers soon blasted Kate on Twitter. "Dear #KateHudson-My son & I would be dead if I didn't have a c-section. Keep your 'lazy' comments to yourself, it's offensive & ill informed," a user wrote, while another sarcastically quipped, "My Two C Sections were necessary in order to save the lives of my 2 wonderful sons. Not lazy, and it hurt like hell. #LazyMom."

Another user snarked, "guess being in labor 4 24hrs with no progress, my son in distress & then having a c-section was my lazy way out. Good to know." Another remarked, "How rude could #KateHudson be I had 4 c-sections in 3 yrs and almost lost 2 of them seriously lost all respect."

Kate has two children, 13-year-old Ryder and 6-year-old Bingham. While she gave birth to Bingham naturally, Ryder was delivered through C-section two weeks before his due date. The actress previously shared, "I was going to get induced because the baby was so big. Then my hips weren't opening, and I wasn't dilating."
"I was in labor. My contractions were two to five minutes apart and I couldn't feel anything," she added. "The doctor said I could go home, but it was such a pain in the butt to get to hospital because we were being stalked by photographers. We went in at midnight and I was like: 'I am not going home. I just don't want to do this again. Let's just have a C-section.' And so I got drugged up."
